Collection Overview

Title: Lewis Hanke Collection, 1935-1985Add to your cart.

ID: Manuscripts/Collection 54

Primary Creator: Lewis Hanke (1905-1993)

Extent: 45.0 Cubic Feet

Arrangement:

35 Hollinger boxes

The collection is divided into two principal parts based on the chronology of its arrival to the Latin American Library. The earliest material sent in 1971 comprises the first part.  It was housed originally in two filing cabinets that has sinced been rehoused in Hollinger boxes for temporary storage.  Material sent later in 1979, 1988, and 1990 comprise the second part of the collection.  Material sent in 1979 is contained in Boxes 1 to 21; material sent in 1988 is in Boxes 22 to 26, and material sent in 1990 is in Box 27.

An inventory which serves as a preliminary guide to the contents of the first part has been prepared. A set of cards also lists the entries. The documents had been arranged in the two filing cabinets in the following order:

Filing Cabinet 1

Drawer 1: Professional correspondence of Hanke up to 1961

Drawer 2: Correspondence on Las Casas. Reprints of publications on Las Casas.

Drawer 3 Reprints of Hanke's publications on Las Casas and other topics, with added materials dating to 1988. Photocopies of archival materials. Photographs.

Drawer 4 Reprints by other authors A-D.

Filing Cabinet 2

Drawer 1 Reprints by other authors E-La.

Drawer 2 Reprints by other authors Le-N.

Drawer 3 Reprints by other authors O-Z.

Drawer 4 Reviews of Hanke's books. Reviews by Hanke, some in manuscript. Tape recording of conversation with Professor Norman Cantor. Microfilm from Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris. Film strips from the Archivo de Indias.

The second part of the collection is made up of Hanke's professional correspondence since about 1960. It includes his correspondence with publishers, his files of materials having to do with the Latin American Studies Association, the NDEA Institute at Columbia University, and the American Historical Association, of which he was president. Also included are files of student records. Of these materials Hanke stated in a letter dated April 13, 1979:

...these 19 boxes [now in 21 boxes] represent a more important part of my life than the previous shipment of material up to about 1960. In the first shipment a large part of my files on the Hispanic Foundation period (1939-1951) had to remain in the Library of Congress. The same may be said for the period of my editorship of the Hispanic American Historical Review (1954-1960). The present shipment includes correspondence with and about my students at Texas (1951-1961), Columbia (1961-1967), University of California, Irvine (1967-1969), and University of Massachusetts, Amherst (1969-1975). There is much information on my relations with publishers during the years 1951-1975, particularly during 1961- 1967 while I was at Columbia. These years saw the preparation of the three volume Historia de la Villa Imperial de Potosí, with Gunnar Mendoza; the two-volume edition of readings on the History of Latin American Civilization; and my work as General Editor for the 30- volume series published by Alfred Knopf, Inc., "Books on Latin America."
